One of the easternmost provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia is a pleasant and scenic place to visit today. But it has a colorful and sometimes checkered history. From bank robbers who used P.T. Barnum's circus as a diversion to voters who went to the polls brandishing clubs and pistols to the world's largest manmade explosion until the testing of the atomic bomb, Nova Scotia's history is filled with unbelievable yet true tales.
In this episode, I am joined by a returning friend of the podcast, Dean Jobb. Dean is a professor of journalism and a member of the faculty of the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction Program at the University of King's College in Halifax. He has an enduring interest in true crime and has written several books on the subject. Dean joins me again to discuss his latest book, "Daring, Devious & Deadly: True Tales of Crime and Justice from Nova Scotia's Past," which is a collection of 15 remarkable true crime stories.
